~to see her beautiful blocks
The next two blocks were not complicated and were enjoyable to make.
Patchique' Block #45: Komochi kume igeta (Grouped well-curb whirlpool)
|Block #45 l|
from the Japanese Taupe Quilts book
And this is my Block #45: Grouped well-curb whirlpool
|#45 Grouped well -curb whirlpool Susie's Sunroom|
It has a part-sewn seam in it. The directions were well written, and I finished the block easily.
True confession- I did start to add the second piece in the wrong direction, and had to rip out abut 2 1/2 inches of stitches . (No biggy.)
My husband caught on to the "overlap" in the block right away, and liked that concept.
Patchique' block #70: Shikishi ( Calligraphy cards)
|Block #70 from the book|
The star is formed by laying the blocks of fabric at the right places.
This is my Calligraphy cards block-

I wondered what my blocks would look like in this layout. So I filled in an excel chart to see , even though I did not put in sashing around the blocks:

Now, here's my Spinning in the Rain block #4:

This block was paper pieced! ( Yep, I did a happy dance when I printed out the pattern!)
Block #4 is a vibrant one, with the green polka dot pinwheels jumping out .
